Day 173 – Looking Unto Jesus
1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
Let us not be weary or faint in our minds. Let nothing be so discouraging to you such that your mind will fail. In Luke 22:32 Jesus says onto Simon “But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not” I pray this prayer for you too that your faith will not fail.
There are many examples in the scriptures of people who lived by faith. Joseph made plans for his bones when he died being so sure that God will visit the people of Israel; the harlot Rahab decided to follow Jesus and join the Israelites as opposed to the enemy because she believed the spies.
It does not matter what state you are in right now, do not consider the situations around you, consider only Jesus who gave His life for you, Do not let your commitment to Jesus fail. Let your faith be strong, expect your miracle, no matter how long it takes before it come to pass. Keep your eyes on His promises. God is forever faithful.
